Hi Everyone! After a routine mammogram in October during my annual physical exam, I received news that an ultrasound was needed as a precaution. The ultrasound led to additional testing and a biopsy ultimately led to a diagnosis of Triple Negative Breast Cancer, Stage 1a, Grade 3. So here I am . . .In mid-December 3 small cancerous tumors were removed from my right breast. The healing process has been very slow, but I'm on the right track which is most important. Last week a power port was put in my chest on the left side, which I have to say is very uncomfortable but I will eventually get used to it since I will have it for another 6 months during chemotherapy. I just received a call from my oncologist, asking me to start chemo next week. So Thursday is the target date for my chemotherapy initiation. I will do my best to keep this updated -- hopefully better than my facebook postings!
